The Vikings made cornerback Bashaud Breeland a late addition to a rebuilding secondary. The former Chief is expected to have a chance to make an immediate impact.
Breeland’s one-year deal is worth up to $4 million, per Tomasson.
Mackensie Alexander, who has returned to the Vikings after a year with the Bengals, is the top candidate to be the starting nickel corner.
Last year, two rookies started on the outside for the Vikings — Dantzler and Jeff Gladney, whose future with the team is in doubt after an offseason domestic-violence arrest.
Breeland, 29, entered the league as a fourth-round pick in 2014. He has played for Washington (four years), Green Bay (one season), and Kansas City (two years).
